How We Have Helped Women Across the World


Empowerment of Women and Reduction of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) and Early Forced Marriage

Our project in Tillaberi focuses on women community-based organisations and groups, and how they bring about economic empowerment whilst also tackling GBV (gender-based violence) in the community.


Women and Children Safe Space in Al Ramtha

The project supported 194 children with a protected environment and empowered 162 women with livelihood training and basic skills to effectively engage them in their host community.


Women Empowerment through Education and Skill Development

In rural Afghanistan where opportunities are limited for Women, we provided 88 women with goats and awareness training about livestock and kitchen gardening, resulting in 200 kitchen gardens being established.


Integrated Community Resilience Programme (ICReP)

The project worked directly with women in 2 locations to build long-lasting and sustainable economic empowerment in an area vulnerable to climatic shocks.
